[GreenYes] How do you encourage businesses to reduce waste?
Hello people -- We at Ecology Action are gearing up for another year of
business waste reduction assistance in Santa Cruz County and elsewhere. To
increase our chances of success, we'd like to know what other assistance
providers are doing to ensure follow-through after businesses are given
recommendations. This has been the hardest part of the process for us, even
after providing a clear task list and evidence of potential savings.

We're interested in knowing about any business assistance programs and how
they encourage operators to act on recommendations in the absence of
mandates. We've gotten some excellent information from Spokane County, where
employee resistance is suggested as a major factor in non-participation. Any
thoughts, stories?

-- Victor
